“Despite the fear and anxiety, I felt like this was an opportunity for me to produce a body of work that spoke to the moment. I create work that studies sexuality and connection within a modern world. ‘Seclude in the Nude’ is my documentation of intimacy during an unprecedented period of isolation. The images capture a need for people to feel seen and connected to one another despite and because of the necessity for social distancing. From a personal perspective, it can be hard to be creative amidst so much uncertainty. The project has given me purpose and structure as the days have a tendency to blur together. Connecting with people in this manner has been a surreal experience that I feel is reflected in the images. I hope that the body of work serves as a time capsule to remember this moment in history.
During this difficult time, I am participating in the artist support pledge and selling prints from the project at reduced prices. I will be splitting the profits from the print sales with the people I photographed. Furthermore, for every $1000 in print sales, I pledge to buy other artists work of the same value.”
The project is ongoing. If you are in NYC and would like to be photographed, please get in touch.
